Doctor :   Hi
User :   hello doctor...
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   I am undergoing fertility treatment and i am in the 2nd cycle of IUI...i am taking conest capsule after the IUI...can u please tell me what is the need for it?
User :   u there doctor?
Doctor :   Normally during pregnancy after fertilisation
Doctor :   there are certain hormones secreted by the body
Doctor :   they aid or rather help in implatation of the fertilised egg as well as maintain the pregnancy early on.
Doctor :   Now since the doctors are artifically trying their best to help you conceive, you too need those hormones to maintain pregnancy early on.
Doctor :   The conest capsule contains those essential hormone (progesterone).
Doctor :   That is the reason why you are on this pill.
Doctor :   Do you follow?
User :   ok doctor...Last cycle of IUI i got a weakly +ive and my HCG count at 4 week was 135 and when i check the HCG during my 5 week it was just 10 and i got my peroids ...what can be the posible reason?
Doctor :   Urine pregnancy test detects the levels of HCG in the urine.
Doctor :   The possible explanation that I can think of for the last episode is,
Doctor :   you may have got a weakly positive test initially probably because of the HCG infections given to you earlier.
Doctor :   The chance of succesful pregnancy after each IUI is around 30%.
Doctor :   So the weakly positive test may have been false positive report
Doctor :   thus the reduction in the HCG values and period later on.
Doctor :   Do you follow?
User :   ok doctor....will this happen everything i do a IUI that i ll get a false positive ??
User :   everytime*
Doctor :   If you were on HCG infections, there are chances that you may get a false positive reports.
Doctor :   But as I mentioned that you have 30% chance of pregnancy too,
Doctor :   it is difficult to predict if the report you have is a genuine one or a false report.
Doctor :   this can be confirmed only by serial blood HCG tests.
Doctor :   A slow increase in blood HCG titres is suggestive of pregnancy.
Doctor :   Do you follow?
User :   ko doctor...last question doctor....what is HCG infections?
Doctor :   HCG is a hormone.
Doctor :   It is useful in inducing ovulation.
User :   i am 16 days past ovulation and no sign of periods but i am worried what will happen this time doctor...
Doctor :   Stress and worries play a negative role. They can significantly affect the chances of pregnancy.
Doctor :   Hence I suggest you not to worry much.
Doctor :   Be relaxed, sleep well.
Doctor :   Some doctor's feel the chances of pregnancy increases with the number of IUI cycles.
Doctor :   So you have better chances of pregnancy now when compared to earlier.
Doctor :   Take the medications as suggested by your doctor.
Doctor :   You may be have fruitful results soon.
Doctor :   Do you follow?
